Good Morning Everyone

I woke up late for me -- around six this morning -- and something felt different. I opened the blinds and it was cloudy and a chilly 50 degrees. I looked out the kitchen window and saw this beautiful sunrise through the clouds.

Except for a winter spent in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, I have never lived in the mountains and had no idea that I, cloud-lover that I am, would be treated to so many gorgeous cloud sightings here. After 30, more or less, cloudless years in Los Angeles, this is truly a wondrous experience for me.

My husband and Samson went back to Los Angeles yesterday. We had a very busy long weekend – a lot of work, but some fun also. We spent Labor Day with my BIL and his family at our niece's house in town. I didn't bring my camera so no photos of that day. But I have a lot of pictures of this guy:

Who may have a few tales of his own to tell soon.

Guess what I am going to do now:

Yes, bake a cake… it's that kind of weather and I haven't baked for such a long time.

Then I want to catch up on all that's been going on with you, my friends, since I last read your blogs.

Have a great day!


  1. Good Morning, Inger! Beautiful morning there, not so much here. It's cool, but that's OK. It's the dreary clouds that make it such a dull day. Hope you enjoy your day. Save a piece of cake for me! ;-D

  2. Beautiful colors, absolutely gorgeous. Hmmm what kind of cake?

  3. Hehe ... Good Morning Inger!

    Yes, the the desert does provide some spectacular sunrises (the best time of the day) - where I am now is about 50 miles from the sea and sometimes the incoming moisture gives us great sunrises ...

    Enjoy your cake.

  4. I love clouds and sunrises and sunsets.
    Samson is getting so big and what a goofy grin he has. Love it.
    Cake! Did you say cake?! I'll be right over! lol :)

  5. Wow! What a great way to start the day. Thanks for sharing with us.

  6. Louise: Sorry about the dreary day. How fun if you all could come over for cake.

    OneStonedCrow: I once saw the sun rise over the Mojave desert; something I will never forget. Wonder how far I am from the ocean here.

    Tina: Oatmeal! I only know banana bread, oatmeal, and zucchini bread. This is a bread, but is called a cake. Frosting is a no no for me, so it's a bread.

    AJ-Oaks: Samson is too much. Wait until he tells you what he did this weekend! Wish you were here too, my dear friend.

    Kent Island Red: Thanks for stopping by my blog. Beautiful sunrises makes your day better, I think.

  7. Beautiful sunrise! I see them most days that DH isn't home, when he's home... I sleep in! We have more than our fair share of clouds today, it's quite gloomy.
    Samson is growing up nicely! He's such a pretty boy!
    I don't bake much any more - I eat it and don't need it! ;-)

  8. Cake weather? I will use that excuse next time I am on a baking tear.
    Love your clouds. When we purchased our property we had no idea that many of the neighbors came to our fences each night to watch the sun as it set over the pine forest. That's why we named our farm Sunset Pines. We see the most gorgeous sunset over the fields.

  9. Sharon: I never baked or cooked much in my earlier life, but now I enjoy it a lot.

    Polly: Sunset Pines is a beautiful name. July and August are pretty boring with eternal sunshine and few clouds, but the rest of the year can be just gorgeous.

  10. What a beautiful sunrise! And yes, our night and day was much better than 24 hours ago! Thanks!

  11. At the end of my day, it's nice to stop by your blog and see what the start of your day looked like. What a beautiful start to the day! I've found that living in the country I have really grown to love seeing the start and the end of the day--But the baking, not so much! :-)

  12. sounds like a good day! enjoy the beginning of fall, the clouds and baking. here in joshua tree, we are also getting nice, cool mornings.

  13. I am doing the "scavenger Hunt" project on Flickr and need sunrise and sunset photos.

    We are at the time of year when they look like gray cats in the fog. No blaze of color to be seen.

    it is SOUP MAKING weather. I approve, however , of the cake option

  14. Beautiful! And Samson is adorable.
    Thank you for the comment on my blog. I'm not sure what's wrong with my hand. I broke my collar bone, and I thought my fingers were swollen and stiff from that. But the therapist asked if I'd had them x-rayed, so maybe I have some little fractures or arthritis. I will be seeing a finger expert soon. Sounds like maybe we're in the same boat.

  15. Beautiful skies!!! I've been AWOL from blog reading and have spent the past two hours savoring a Saturday morning and two cups of coffee while catching up. I think I would enjoy desert life!


  16. Jeff: I'm glad things quieted down for you.

    Kim: It was a gorgeous morning.

    Hopeful: I will emjoy EVERYTHING now that it has cooled down a bit.

    Upupaepops: I have tons of sunrise/set photos. Do you want some or do they all have to come from your camera?

    Terry: Yep, we are in the same boat. I was in a sling for 2.5 months and didn't use my hand. Now I can't bend or stretch my fingers and there is a lot of inflammation.

    Ninny: Thanks, and now you have to check out my new Mojave post.


Thanks for leaving a comment.. ~~ Inger
